Video Games Good For Kids A new study published in the journal Scientific Reports reveals that children, who play video games have an IQ that is 2.5 points higher than children, who don't play video games.
Researcher Torkel Klingberg says, "We didn't examine the effects of screen behaviour on physical activity, sleep, wellbeing or school performance, so we can't say anything about that. But our results support the claim that screen time generally doesn't impair children's cognitive abilities, and that playing video games can actually help boost intelligence. This is consistent with several experimental studies of video-game playing."

My girlfriend's threw me a bachelorette party this past weekend. We were all over town including at a psychic's office. The psychic freaked me out when she pulled me aside and told me not to marry. She said things were not as they seem, but didn't elaborate any more. I'm getting married a week from Sunday and am now scared about tying the knot. I'd like to hear from other brides, who went to psychics prior to their wedding. Should I believe her or not?
